This feeder is on our front porch. We have 5 total....this is our smallest one...
We have had a "flurry" of activity lately with this one feeder especially....
Hummingbirds will migrate north in the spring and start to arrive in February in the Southern United States and as far north as Alaska in May. They will then migrate south to Mexico and Central America in the fall starting in August through October.
Hummingbirds do not migrate on the backs of geese.
Would you believe me if I told you that Mickey has been filling this feeder twice a day?
I guess they are getting ready for the trip back to hummingbird land...
Each hummingbird will follow the same path or fly zone they did when they first made the trip. It is believed that they will follow this path the rest of their lives.
When hummingbirds are migrating, they usually do not stay very high off the ground. They have been reported to fly just above treetop level over land or pretty much skimming the top of the water ways. It is believed they do this to keep an eye out for a food or nectar opportunity on their long journey.
